Does coffee go bad?

I'm not sure if this belongs here or kitchen safety, but does coffee go bad?

I only drink coffee in the morning. I usually drink all that I make, but at those times I don't and the coffee has been sitting in the pot all day and into the next morning..... I'm wondering if it is still OK to heat up and drink

I can't say if it 'goes bad' but it will taste awful. The oils from the coffee can go rancid or begin to, making the coffee taste bad. Make fresh coffee.

Don't know the answer to your question, pacanis. Whenever Buck and I have coffee - on Sunday - we put whatever is left in a container in the refrigerator and heat it up another day. Or if we don't reheat it to drink, I use it as an ingredient in a favorite black devil's food cake.

Thanks. Rancid, bad, both sound "not good". I should really remember to stick it in the fridge if I forget about it, but that's obviously the problem to begin with, I forget about it.
At least I buy the cheap stuff.
That's gotta be my favorite part in Pulp Fiction.... where thay are all commenting on Quentin's "serious fine gourmet ####"

It doesn't taste as good but it's not "bad". Otherwise I would have been dead long ago!
